Let's Dance with a Style
Songs of urban backyards, streets, salons and cabarets, moving not just the body. Every song is a differnt story: dramatic, passionate, sometimes pompous, often with big dose of humour. One would hear stylish arrangements of tangos, waltzes and foxtrots.

PompaDur – a troupe of chambers and backyards. Their music is fresh and life bringing, like a well-sharpened knife; always well cut and with a frill, that many countess would envy. Style and extravagance is coming here straight from the upper class: from smokey dives, suburban dancehalls and cabarets. PompaDur does also have melancholic ballades of the yards, cabarets' songs, funny tales noir, tangos that make every step a fight for one's life. Songs are about everyday matters – dramatic breakups, love conquering death and secrets hidden in a double bass case. Where there are love and other demons, there has to be some blood spilled at times; however, no matter how smokey the place is and how thick would be the mist around, the blood remains blue and sweet and the music is passionate, lyrical and stylish.
„The band made an extraordinary thing: took a fossil of a genre of Warsaw-folk town ballade, denounced what is dead and made essentional and timeless things alive” Paweł Szczutowski, Radio Praga
